    Ann B. Davis, known to everyone as the Brady Bunch's housekeeper Alice, dies at 88.


    Another part of my childhood's late afternoons is gone.

    First thing that came to our minds in the newsroom when we heard she died: "She was still alive?"

    Makes me remember the good old' days of TBS, when the Brady Bunch aired at 3:35.

    Maybe higher if she had worn a French maid outfit.

    It's like Sam the butcher bringing Alice the meat (in the Great Beyond).

    She must've been a terrific hurdler as a young woman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsMR3dW5SxI

    Spent many many many many days with her and the Bunch.

    Will anyone remember any of her other roles without needing to look them up?

    She actually won two Emmys before appearing on The Brady Bunch. Had no idea.

    I didn't even know that the Bob Cummings Show existed before today.

    I don't even know who Bob Cummings was.

    RIP Alice. I used to watch the show all the time after school.

    The movies were on here yesterday and I watched them and was remembering how awesome I thought Alice was the best one on that show. Davis wasn't in the movies as Alice, but man, as a kid, I just loved her. She was way cooler than the kids or the parents.
